Study Tips 



TEN TIPS TO BETTER GRADES 

1 . Sit os close to the instructor as you can There are fewer visual distractions which makes it easier to concentrate, you are less likely to daydream, read a 
paper, or write letters if the professor can see you 

2. Instead of daydreaming or doodling, review your class notes 

3. Copy down everything written on the board If an instructor is willing to take the time to put a point on the board, more than likely you will see it again 

4. Try to find a fixed place for studying only Choose an area that is reasonably quiet and relatively free of distractions Do not study on a couch or near a bed 
If at all possible, study at a desk Also, do not take phone calls or messages during your allotted study time 

5. Before you begin an assignment, write down on a sheet of paper the time when you expect to be finished This will make your study behavior more efficient 
and put a slight amount of pressure on you 

6. If your mind wanders, stand up and face away from your books The physical act of standing up helps bring your thinking back to your work 

7. Never underline an entire sentence Pick out a few works that summarize the author's main point 

8. When you take an examination, do the easy questions first 

9. On an essay test, write down something for every item You may pick up a few points for imagination 

10. On objective tests if you change your mind, change your answer Contrary to popular belief, on the average you are more likely to pick up more points than you 
will lose by changing answers

ALCOHOL POLICY 

Rationale 

IUP seeks to encourage and sustain an academic environment that both respects individual choice and promotes the health, safety, and welfare of all members 

of the university community Accordingly, the university offers these statements for guidance and the policies, which follow as regulation of alcoholic 

beveroges. consistent with the statutes and laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 

In support of its mission, the university sponsors educational programs on the physical, psychological, social, and behavioral effects of a'cohol consumption It 

provides alternatives to alcoholic beverages for promoting social interaction, and it provides services and resources for community members who experience 

difficulty in dealing with personal or family alcohol-related issues IUP's alcohol policy and programs are intended to encourage community members to make 

responsible decisions about the use of alcoholic beverages and to promote a safe, lawful, and healthy environment for social interaction 

While acknowledging that alcohol may play a role in some social settings, the university expects all members of the community to recognize the potential for 

abuse of alcohol whenever it is consumed Such abuse is absolutely inimical to the mission of the university Alcohol consumption will not be considered an 

excuse for misconduct but rather as an aggravating factor to the misconduct in question 

The university expects that members of the campus community who choose to consume or serve alcoholic beverages will do so responsibly and as a result of 

making an informed decision This decision should be based upon consideration of the consequences to self, to others, and to the community at large and with 

full awareness and understanding of individual aiid group accountability, behavioral consequences, relevant policies, regulations, and laws 

Since IUP students live among the permanent residents of the Indiana community, the university also expects alcohol-related behavior to be in accordance 

with local community standards Such standards are not tolerant of gatherings which are either boisterous or in violation of Pennsylvania alcohol laws, as may 

occur in concentrated residential environments characterized by student housing The university reserves the right to initiate disciplinary proceedings when 

students violate alcohol laws either on or off campus 

The preceding statements exist for the guidance of all university community members The regulations, which follow, are intended to govern the use of 

alcoholic beverages on property owned, operated, or supervised by the university or Student Cooperative Association 

Policy 

1 . Alcoholic beveroges are not permitted on university or Student Cooperative Association grounds or in buildings including residence halls, except as provided 
below

C. University of Student Cooperative Association professional staff members whose permanent place of residence is on campus may possess and consume 
alcoholic beveroges in their residence 

d. Non university guests who rent or schedule university facilities following the university scheduling policy may serve alcoholic beverages, providing that 
approval is granted by the vice president for Student Affairs and that all applicable laws ordinances, and university policy are followed 

e. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited on all Student Cooperative Association prope>*t'«s except the University Lodge To serve aicohol at the University 
Lodge all participants must be of legal age and the sponsor must show proof of Host Liquor Liability Insurance of at least $500,000 with IUP. the 
Student Cooperative Association, and the College Student Union Association named as additional insurers Alcohol permission forms are available from 
the director of the Hadley Union Building ond Campus Recreation 

2. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted within gymnasiums or fields at athletic events 

3. State funds may not be used to purchase alcoholic beveroges 

4. On-campus publicity for any campus or off-campus event sponsored by recognized organizations or members of the IUP community moy not include the 
advertising of the availability of alcohol at those events ond may not use the availability of alcohol as an incentive to attend those events Unless an event is 
specifically advertised as nonalcoholic, the use of illustrations or terminology which imply the use of alcohol in this community is prohibited 

5. The university reserves the right to make further regulations regarding the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus as necessary 
Pennsylvania Liquor Code 

The Pennsylvania Liquor Code controls the possession, sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania The following 
represents a summary of relevant articles from the code 

34 



1 . It is o summary offense for a person under the age of twenty-one to purchase or attempt to purchase, consume, possess, or transport any alcohol, liquor, 
or malt or brewed beverages 

2. It is unlawful to sell or give alcohol, malt, or brewed beverages to any minor (under twenty-one) When the minor is less than eighteen years of age, it is 
a misdemeanor of the first degree punishable by a maximum penalty of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine 

3. It is unlawful to transfer or to procure unlawfully a Liquor Control Board card This offense is punishable by up to sixty days in jail or a $300 fine 

4. It is a misdemeanor of the third degree to misrepresent one's age knowingly and falsely to obtain alcoholic beverages or to represent that another is of 
legal age for such a purpose 

5. It is a misdemeanor of the third degree if a person requests or induces a minor to purchase alcoholic beverages 

6. Sales of alcoholic beverages without a Liquor Control Board license or the purchase of such beverages from an unlicensed source of liquor or malt or 
brewed beverages are prohibited 

7. It is unlawful to posses or to transport liquor or alcohol within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania unless it is purchased from a state liquor store or in 
accordance with Liquor regulations 

8. It is a summary offense punishable by a fine of up to $300 for the driver of a motor vehicle to consume alcoholic beverages while the vehicle is in 
operation. 

9. A pedestrian under the influence of alcohol beverages who creates a hazard by walking on the road can be convicted and fined up to $300 as a summary 
offense 

10. Borough of Indiana - Ordinance #1376: It is unlawful to possess an open container of an alcoholic beverage while in or upon public streets, alleys, parks, 
or other public grounds 

Alcohol Liability in Pennsylvania 

In December, 1986, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, in a case titled Fasset vs Delta Kappa Epsilon (New York), the Villanova chapter 
of Delta Kappa Epsilon, et al . reviewed the law of Pennsylvania concerning the liability of a social host who serves alcohol The court held that particular 
defendants could be held liable if they had an intention to promote or facilitate the consumption of alcohol by a minor or attempted to aid in the consumption 
of alcohol by minors Consequently, the court held that the president of the fraternity that sponsored the party (because he helped organize the party), the 
treasurer of the fraternity who signed a check for the purchase of the alcohol, and three other individuals who allowed their apartment to be used for the 
party where minors were served intoxicating beverages could all be held liable for injuries to the intoxicated minor and any third parties injured by the minor 
Thus, individuals in Pennsylvania who furnish alcoholic beverages to minors not only commit a violation of law, but they also render themselves potentially liable 
for any injuries the minor might sustain and for any injuries that third parties might sustain due to an act of an intoxicated minor Individuals potentially liable 
for such damages include not only those who physically furnish the alcohol to the minor but any persons who aid and assist in the furnishing of the alcohol 
through its purchase or through organizing, hosting, or supporting the event at which the alcohol is made available

CLASS DISRUPTION POLICY 

Students and faculty alike should strive to create a class environment that reflects mutual respect and the importance of learning If o student s behavior 
threatens to disrupt that environment, the faculty member has a responsibility to seek resolution of the problem 

A faculty member is empowered to request that a student leave during a particular class period if, in the measured opinion of that faculty member, the student 

1 Significantly disrupts the learning process, or 

2 Is a threat to others 



3C 



If the student refuses to leave or, if the faculty member deems it appropriate, law enforcement officers may be called to remove the student 

If the behavior is especially egregious or potentially harmful, the faculty member may, with the consent of his/her academic dean and in consultation with the 
department chairperson, keep the student from returning to class until the case can be adjudicated Because significant disruptive class behavior is a potential 
violation of the Academic integrity Policy, the procedures outlined in that policy should be used to resolve the case When appropriate, criminal charges should also 
be filed 

If deemed appropriate, the adjudicators may render a decision that removes the offending student from the class or the university If so, the University will 
assign, in lieu of a grade, a designation that indicates a withdrawal If grades are due before a final decision has been reached, the instructor should assign a 
temporary grade of I (incomplete). 

If the student is allowed to return, the student will have the option of re-entering another open section of the course if feasible When appropriate, the student 
should be allowed a reasonable opportunity to make up any work missed during a forced absence 

If a student's grade is adversely affected by a capricious forced absence, the student may file a grade appeal.

POLICIES AND REGULATIONS 6OVERNIN6 STUDENT OR6ANI2ATIONS 

Statement of Relationship of General Fraternities and Sororities 

Introduction 

Since 1914 IUP has acknowledged that general fraternities and sororities can be a valuable component of the undergraduate experience Fraternal organizations 

maintain, as their primary purpose the enhancement of the student learning and growing process through activities encouraging leadership development, organization 

management interpersonal and group dynamics, social awareness philanthropic spirit, university loyalty, and career orientation and development, thereby earning 

them the privilege of university recognition 

A recognized general fraternity or soronty can complement the curncular and co-curncular aims of IUP by enhancing opportunities for personal development of its 

members and providing significant contributions to the campus and communitv environments If the group is successful in meeting these goals the fraternal 

organization has fulfilled its purpose of providing members with the potential of a positive co curncular experience 

To strengthen their positive presence and to ensure the continued contributions of its recognized general fraternities and sororities. IUP has odopted the 

Statement of Relationship of General Fraternities and Sororities The statement details the relationship between each general fraternal organization and the 

university in terms of definition, obligations benefits and accountability The statement details the criteria and means by which the potential of the membership 

experience is measured and reinforced 

The issuance of recognition by IUP to any organization or activity is not to be necessarily taken as approval by the university or agreement with any particular point 

of view that might be expressed by the organization nor is it to be taken as approval of any or all activities in which the organization engages The university does 

not. by issuing recognition or approval assume responsibility for any damages that might arise from expressions or activities of student organizations 



University Recognition 

A Definition of a Frotemity or Sorority 

A general fraternal organization is defined as 

A chapter of undergraduate men and/or women which has been chartered by a National Interfraternity Conference, Motional Panhellenic Conference, or 
National Panhellenic Council member organization and which satisfies the university criteria for recognition as defined within the statement The organization 
maintains goals which are articulated by the chartering national sponsor, and these goals are interpersonal/fraternal rather than exclusively or primarily 
honorary, professional, religious, political, or social in nature A recognized chapter and its chartering national organization maintain a fraternal ethos of high 
ideals, principles, and values as enshrined in esoteric ritual and embodied in mission and practice consistent with the aims of the university 



B Purpose and Statement of Relationship 

University recognition is granted to a chapter, which contributes to the educational mission of IUP as defined by the statement The university maintains the 

burden of proof to demonstrate that the chapter is not contributing to the educational mission of IUP, as determined through the formal hearing procedures 

defined by the statement, should the withdrawal of recognition be considered 

University-recognized general fraternal organizations remain independent of the university and do not serve as agents or employees of the university 

University recognition and accompanying benefits should not be misinterpreted as meaning that the chapter and its members are controlled by the university, 

that the university is responsible for the chapter s contracts or other acts or omissions, or that the university approves of the chapter's goals or activities in 

total 

Through recognition, the university enters into an agreement with each chapter only within the basic parameters applied to university recognition of any 

organization There must be 

1 . Commonality with IUP goals and standards 

2. Adherence to university rules and regulations 

3. Mechanisms for accountability 

4 . Provisions for the withdrawal of recognition should goals diverge or standards decline in ways that would expose the university to liability and/or 
should the chapter fail to provide the members with a positive educational experience as defined within this statement 

When 6reek-letter organizations exist and operate with university recognition, the statement describes the relationship between the university and the 

chapter 

A complete copy of the Statement of Relationship can be obtained from the Center for Student Life 

The University Senate approved this policy on September 10, 1991

twenty-five percent of the facility usage fee normally paid by non university groups will be assessed This will help defray overhead costs If the fund 
raising is for a charitable cause, only fees to cover actual university-incurred expenses will be assessed 

3. To the extent possible, users should submit their requests for the use of facilities to the Scheduling Center or the facility coordinator prior to the 
beginning of each fall, spring, and summer session This is especially important in the case of formal social and cultural arts activities (see number 6 
below) When housekeeping and/or maintenance work is required, maintenance requests should be submitted to the maintenance department at least ten 
working days prior to the scheduled event When maintenance is not required, requests to schedule a facility should be submitted ot least three working 
days prior to the scheduled event If an event must be canceled, the Scheduling Center or facility coordinator should be notified within a minimum of

special events 

5. If any university person or group requests a facility for a fee bearing activity in which off-campus persons or groups are involved (eg , a regional, state, 
or national conference), this request must receive the approval of the School of Continuing Education before it can be processed by the Scheduling 
Center 

6. Social and cultural activities will generally be scheduled on a first-come basis The Scheduling Center will have the authority to schedule an activity into 
a facility, which it deems most appropriate for the activity in question Requests of this nature should normally be submitted to the Scheduling Center no 
later than the first day of the fall, spring, and summer sessions Other requests will be considered according to the availability of space 

7. A university person or group may not act as a sponsor for a non university organization for the purpose of avoiding the fee payment as outlined on the list 
of charges for non university users Any known violation of this policy will result in a fee assessed to the individual reserving the facility Future use of a 
facility could be denied 

8. The university reserves the right to deny repeat access to any facility if it is abused 

9. Specific policies exist concerning the use of Breezedale. the Blue Room, East Parlor. Fisher Auditorium, Flagstone Theater, and 6orell Recital Hall and are

The Indiana Community 



HISTORY 

The name Indiana is derived from the word Indian Before the revolution, "Indian Spring" was visited not only by Indians on the north-south Catawba Path, but by 
traders on the east-west Kittanning Path The first European settlers in the area were Fergus Moorhead and his family in 1772 Shortly thereafter. 6wain Adams 
became the first to live in what is now the borough, settling near 399 S 4th Street In 1804-5. George Clymer of Philadelphia, signer of both the Declaration of 
Independence and the Constitution, owned 3,050 acres, including the site of the borough Through an act of the state legislature, a site for the county seat was 
selected, and public lots were put up for sale At the time the only building was a log tavern, with Henry Shryock as proprietor Soon to follow were a log 
schoolhouse, a stone jail, and, by the end of 1809, the first courthouse From that time until the Civil War (1861-1865), progress was steady Indiana acquired a 
secondary school, several manufacturing businesses, the first Indiana County Fair, a banking service, and the arrival of the Pennsylvania Railroad After the Civil 
War, the pace of development increased A separate borough, West Indiana, was incorporated and later merged with Indiana Telegraph service arrived, then gas 
lighting, telephone lines, a water supply system, fire hydrants, a public library, electricity, mail delivery, and the first street paving Through this period there were 
a series of newspapers ending with the Indiana County Gazette, forerunner of the present Indiana 6azette By 1900, the population was over fifteen thousand 
After the turn of the century, the first municipal building was erected on North 7th Street, in 1912-13 Automobiles arrived and more paving A streetcar service 
operated from 1907 to 1933 The first hospital, in 1909. was followed shortly by the present Indiana Hospital, which has been expanded several times since The 
former Victorian courthouse, built in 1869-70, at Philadelphia and Sixth Streets, mas replaced by the present modern building at Philadelphia and 8th in 1971 
The current municipal building on North 8** Street was built in 1976 It contains the offices of most appointed officials, council chambers, and the Borough Police
